When Coach Miller gave the first call t"<>r candidates for baseball, a 
likely 1< >• .kini^ squad answered and practice started immediately. Coach Miller 
was "blessed with as neat and efficient a battery as any College could wish. 
Henke, a big southpaw, and French, a man of experience as catcher. These 
two took active charge and the team soon rounded into playing shape. 

After a few weeks' hard practice the season was opened at Fan Claire 
against the formidable N'ormal which only the previous week had gained 
much notoriety by defeating Winona Normal in a no hit, no run game. Wil-

liains took tin- mound for the Normals and licld Stout hitless until the 
seventh. In the meantime llenke was mowing down the opposing batsman 
with regularity. An error and a hit in the fourth enabled Ran Claire to put 
over two runs. 

In the last of the seventh Stout started a savage attack and evened the 
count. Han Claire was unable to put another man past first base in the next 
two innings while Stout managed to squeeze another run in the ninth taking 
the game :\-~i. It was a well played game and Stout showed good baseball 
judgment for their first game. 

Stout 1? ; Eau Claire 1. 

On .May 84th, Eau Claire came for a return game and Stout rooters were 
treated to more of a track meet than a baseball game. Stout jumped upon 
the redoubtable Mr. Williams in the first inning and drove him from the 
mound, lie was succeeded by Mc.Mahon whose stay was extremely brief. 
Ilenkc pounding out his tir>t offering for a home run. ' Brodie then attempted 
to stop the slaughter but did no better and Coach Phillips waved him to the 
bench and gave William another try. In the meantime llenke seldom al- 
lowed the batters to get to first base, either striking them out or making 
them pop out to the infield. After a strenuous afternoon Stout, with the score 
11 to l. called it an afternoon's work and called the game. Every one on 
the team fattened his batting average, even Sam IiaU clouting the pill for 
two bases. 

Stout 3; War Veterans 2, 

As part of the celebration of the home coming of Co. II. Stout agreed t<> 
play a picked team of the veterans who had just returned from service. These 
nun while not having played with each other to any extent were players well 
versed in the art, having had extensive training and experience in the various 

This attraction drew the largest crowd that ever witnessed a base ball 
game in the home town and both teams put up a very interesting exhibition. 
At no time was there any great difference between the two and rooting wa> 
spirited thruout. Sympathy was properly all with the returned soldiers and 
their every effort was roundly applauded. 

I lenke pitched the best game of the year and gave a fine exhibition of con- 
trol by allowing the bases to fill and then striking out the next three batter- 
in succession. Foss. Archie and Becklund did nice work in cutting down 
vicious drives to the infield while Romberger t- » .k care of first base in tine 

In the last three innings. Stout evened up the runs and llenke saved his 
own game by poling out a three base hit in the ninth which put over the win- 
ning run. 

Stout ended its 1. per cent season with regret, there being no further 

chance of securing games. Most of the schools were yet crippled from ef- 
fects ot the war and all schedules were more or less abbreviated.

On the twentieth of September 
Coach Miller gave the first call for 
football and tins was answered by 
a good sized squad which stuck till 
the end of the season. < m!y four 
men were on hand from the previ- 
ous season and these hail hut little 
experience, the school then having 
been in the hands of the S. A. 'P. C. 
and at the mercy of the second lieu- 

With hut ten days iti which to 
whip the squad into shape before the 
initial tryout and practice game, 


work was undertaken at once t" 
ground the candidates in the funda- 
mentals. Progress was so satis- 
factory that at the end of the week, 
two teams were undertaking some 
signal practice and at the end of 
ten days some scrimmage had taken 

The first scheduled game was 
with the Alumni which boasted of 
some heavy, willing material. The 
Alumni soon showed that tbey were 
unable to stop the offend runs or 
smash off tackle and touchdowns 
were made against them. At crit- 

R \l.fil HERRING 

ieal periods, Stout's line held and 
the ball was punted out of danger. 
Coach Miller at once realized from 
his team's performance that the 
[dunging style of play would have 



Pag* 69 




'l/^^M;/" ^y M/'/A.uu.ww l ,,m,i 



to be abandoned for tin- rest <>f the 
season, the men not being heavy 
enough to bend a heavy line. 5t« 
outplayed and outmaneuvered the 

Alumni and won the game 39-0. 
Spain uncorked some dazzling 
twisting runs and his straight arm 
work made him a difficult man to 

Klink playing in a new position at 
fullback dented the line consistently 
and added his own length forward 
time after time. 

As time progressed and the per- 
sonnel of the team was more or less 
decided upon, it was at once seen 
that Stout was due for a hard season 
on account of lack of weight. The 



backfield averaged under 150 pounds 
and the line hut slightly more, or 
about 1 .*><;. This necessitated a 
change in Strategy and from then on 
Coach Miller devoted his time to the 
polishing up of the Minnesota shift 
which should keep his opponents 
guessing until the instant the ball 
was snapped. ( >rT tackle and end 
runs were revamped and the inter- 
ference work was smoothed out. 
In addition the aerial work received 
considerable attention and shifts 
and spread plays were incorporated 
in the signals. 

Page 70

Not once in the whole season <li<l 
Stout meet a team of its own v 
and in no game were the opponents 
able to More until the close of the 
game, when Stout's line bruised and 
battered was forced to give ground. 

The first regular game of th 
son took place at Steven- Point 
against a team which lost but one 
game the entire season. This was a 
hard fought battle and the only one 
in which Stout was held scoreless. 
Towards the close of the game 
Stout's tackles broke thru and 
!. I.vked a pass which Maerzk< 


verted into a touchdown. This was 
disailowed by the referee who 
claimed that the ball had not left the 
passer's hand. 

Stevens Point's two touchdowns 
both came as the result of forward 
passe- and Stout was forced to take 
defeat 12-0. 

Coach Miller during the next week 
of practice still farther polished up 
his Minnesota shift until every play 
worked from this formation, The 
■ram then went to Winona to meet 
the Pt. Mary's representatives which 


had not been scored on in the three 
previous games. The game \\ - 
even proposition, neither side beinjj 
able to approach closer than twenty 
yards to their opponent's goal. With 



Pate ft 



the last quarter in si^ht and neither 
side as yet scoring, it was freely pre- 
dicted that the battle would end in a 
scoreless tie. A thirty yard pass. 
Spain t<> Archie soon dispelled this 


illusion and on the next play. Stout 
plunged thru the line for the first 
touchdown. Goal was kicked bring- 
ing the score up to ?-<). < >n the kick 
off, St> 'ut ludd for down and took the 
hall up field by a series of short off 
tackle plunges and end runs. A 
spread play netted fifteen yards and 
a pass Spain to Archie put the ball 
over for the second touchdown of the 
game. Goal was missed and the 
game ended 13-0 in favor of Stout. 
The only home game of the sea- 
son then took place against the husky 
River Falls team. As the maroon 


and white took the field a gasp of 
envy arose from the Stout rooters 
at the size and weight of the visit- 
\ conservative estimate placed 
the Stout opponents as averaging at 
least 30 pounds more per man. 
Stout elected to receive the kick off 
and Spain returned the ball twenty 
yards before being downed. Spain 
then called for a pass and shot tin- 
ball straight to Archie at end who 
started down the field for a touch- 
down, lie was forced out of bounds 
on the twenty yard line and Stout 

I ■«■■ .-.• 


mmiammi h i ANNUAL 

lost the ball on the next play, 
aplunge thru tackle. River Falls 
then kicked out of danger and the 
game settled into a contest as to 
which team could withstand the most 

The Stout line held well throwing 
the River Falls powerful hacks for a 
loss three times when the ball was on 
the Stout one foot line. A quick 
opening allowed the River Falls 
quarter to slip thru for the first 
touchdown, and goal was missed. 

( >n receiving the kickoff, Archie 
r;ui the ball hack ten yards and was 


downed. Spain then called a spread 
play and passed the ball to Archie 
who raced -ixty yards for the firit 
and only touchdown of the game. 
Score — Stout : : River Falls fi. For 
the next thirty minutes neither side 
became dangerous and the final pe- 
riod starteil with Stout still in the 
lead. At this critical minute with 
victory in sight, Old Man Jinx got 
in his w< >rk. I lenke. right half, u en; 
to the side lines with a broken shoul- 
der. Quistorff soon followed with 
a twisted knee which kept him out 


of the game for the rest of the sea- 
son. Maerzke was knocked uncon- 
scious and was relieved. Miller sent 
in substitutes but the onrush of Riv- 



Page 73 

mHsmtsnz \ annual 




er Falls backs could not be staid. 
Two more touchdowns were regis- 
tered against Stun and the game 
ended 20-1 in favor of the visitors. 

The game with St. Thomas Col- 
leg* scheduled for the following Sat- 
urday was failed off owing t" the 
crippled condition of the team. A 
two weeks' layoff from active scrim- 
mage, during which time teamwork 
and -i^nals were overhauled, put the 
team in a fair condition to meet the 
Kau Claire Normal at Eau Claire. 

This was one of the prettiest 
games of the season and also one of 
the hardest fought. Archie went 
out of the game with a twisted ankle 
and Captain-elect Klink was ban- 
ished from the game by the referee 
for talking fight. Neither team was 
able to make any constant ad- 
vances altho Stout actually gained 
more ground and made first down 


often. With Archie and 
Klink looking on from the side lines 
the team sealed down to a steady 
defensive game, punting out of dan- 
ger every time the ball came within 
their thirty-yard zone. An inter- 
cepted forward pass gave the ball to 
Eau Claire which was worked up to 
Stout's thirty-yard line. 

With time drawing to a close and 
darkness settling on the field, 
tain Williams stepped hack for an at- 
tempted drop kick. The pass from 
center to him was perfect and the 
ball rose and settled between the goal 
posts. It was a beautiful kick and 
won the game :>-". This was one of 
the unfortunate breaks in the fame 
against which no team can guard. 
and Captain William was roundly 
applauded by the hundred Stout root- 
ers who had accompanied their team 
to the scene of defeat.

In the next game Stout really went out of her class when the formidable Marquette 
University squad was met. Marquette, which had beaten (he Notre Dame University 
quintet the week before, lost no time in taking the lead and was never headed. The 
University men passed with remarkable precision and failed in very few shots attempt- 
ed. Motit put up a rattling good game and forced the University to send" in five new 
men before the game was over. Marquette 33. Stout 17. 

In the final game of the season. Stout played the return game with the St. Thomas 
team. The cadets had hung up a fine record and had won the State Championship of 
.Minnesota and were claimants to the Championship of the Dakotas by virtue of having 
defeated the University of that State. In addition they had beaten Marquette Univer- 
sity and were in fine condition for a great game. 

Stout started the final game of the season in a determined effort to give the champs 
a stiff argument and in tins they more than succeeded. The first half ended a tie 10—10 
but the second half witnessed a gradual slowing up of Stout's offense and a resorting to 
the defense I he cadets were quick to take advantage oi this and dropped in three 
goals from the center of the floor turning the tide and winning by the score 27— B2. 


on as a whole was not as successful as one might have wished for and yet 
Stout must be given credit for being willing to take a chance with the best teams ob- 
tainable. Coach Miller did not believe in the safety first policv. but was willing to try 
conclusions with every team of ability which would schedule games. 

The month's layoff at the beginning of the season when the men should have been on 
the floor practicing was a serious handicap and this combined with the fact that the 
school can only hold its men for more than two years makes the turning out of a cham- 
pionship team problematical. There is no one who will not believe that with Captain 
Archie at the helm for two years more. Rider. Henke. Ktsc and Decker for three years 
more and VnLski, Mclby. Hall and Klink for another two seasons, that Stout would be 
represented by a quintet that would be a stiff contender for any team to handle. 

The team as a whole put up a good fight thruout the season and altho shifts and 
changes were made frequently in order to strengthen the team, these were taken by the 

fii«<f ,-<s 






team in good part and no ill feeling developed. The team is 10 be congratulated on its 
up-hill Tight, and altho Stout may have been represented by more hnlliant contenders, 
no gamer or harder working squad ever wore the blue and white. 


The Wisconsin State Championship Sectional Tournament was held under the direc- 
tion of Stout Institute March -i. 5 and Oth. Kight of the fastest high schools in the 
Northwest section were entered and some fast basket ball was witnessed. 

Hudson, New Richmond. River Falls. Clayton. Glenwood City. Elmwood, Ellsworth 
and Mcnomonie high school basket ball teams were represented. The huge Co. H 
Armory was leased and bleachers built to seat ever 1.000 people. As the day 
tournament to start approached, one of the worst snow storms in years took place and 
traffic on all railroads was completely blocked. 

This necessitated the postponement for one day until the teams could make connec- 
tion. D. C. Mitchell of the University and I>r, Kinnebcrg of the same place acted as 
officials and handled the meet in a very satisfactory manner. 


Everv facility of Stout was put at the disposal of the visitors and the men reported 
good' time. Mcnomonie high school, winner of the meet, played good basket ball and 
on from New Richmond in a thrilling game by the margin oi one point in the last 

f seconds of play. Glenwood City took second. New Richmond third and Rtver 
Falls fourth. 

Gold silver and bronze medals were awarded the winners and the winning tea: 
presented with a handsome silver cup. The winner was also sent to Madison to com- 
pete for the State Championship with all expenses paid. 

In the final session of the tournament, the Armory was packed to a capacity. More 
than fifteen hundred crowded in to watch the game and great number- were turned

Mechanical Staff 

The "Stoutonia," the weekly budget of the Stout Institute, was reorgan- 
ized in March, 1J)19. under the direction of Mr. C. W. Hague, as faculty 
advisor and Earl Comstock as Editor-in-Chief. Since that time it has been 
published and printed every Thursday by two staffs. The Editorial staff 
is elected from the student body of both departments, and the Mechanical 
staff is composed of the advanced Printing class. Each member of the 
Editorial staff serves continuously from the time of election until leaving 
school, and is promoted as higher vacancies occur : underclassmen are 
usually chosen as new members on the staff. 

The Stoutonia has for its purpose the publishing of all social affairs, 
current happenings, local buzz, and to also serve as an educational medium 
in all developments of Industrial and Household Arts. 

It has been loyally supported by the subscription- of alumni, faculty 
and students, and by the advertisements of local merchants. During its 
short time of publication it has procured a creditable outside circulation. 

Because of the loyal support of the school, the Stoutonia staff, besides 
being able to issue a weekly paper, has taken an active part in contrib- 
uting to the social affairs of the school. On January 23, it gave a dancing 
party at the Stout Gymnasium for the entire student body which was re- 
ported a success by all present. With the co-operation of Smith Bros, of 
the Orpheum theatre the Path* 5 News film has been secured and presented 
each Tuesday at general assembly. This has not only added to the interest 
ot the assembly meetings, but has also proved profitable and educational.

The Stout Glee Club 

The Stout Girls" Glee Club was organized in li»G. and has been a thriv- 
ing organization ever since under the untiring, efficient leadership <>f Miss 
Eda A. Gilkerson, and the hearty co-operation of Mi>- Phillips, our faculty 
adviser, and of the girls themselves. 

During the year l!»is-l!»l!> the clubs sang on numerous occasions, such 
as the dinner given for the return soldiers by the Women's Club, and at 
the baccalaureate service. Tiny completed the year with an operetta en- 
titled. "The Japanese Girl," given during commencement week. 

The year 1919-1920 started very auspiciously with a successful picnic, 
and an enrollment of over sixty members. 

The club has furnished music for assembly several times and closed the 
first semester, busily engaged on plans and music for a concert to be given 
in the second semester. 

An increasing interest and enthusiasm has been manifested by the pres- 
ent membership and the spirit shown is excellent.

Y. W. C. A. 


Tin- iu-w Y. \V. C. A. Cabinet members were installed in office March 
V.. 1919 at a dinner given by the retiring Cabinet. The inspiration and en- 
couragement of these girls made the new members feel that they must do 
the very lust to make the year a successful one in "Y" work. Membership 
of almost a hundred per cent of Protestants reveals the strength of the 
association here at Stout. Much has been done among the students to raise 
standards and promote loyalty to >cli<>o| and faculty. 

The following reports of committee work will give an idea of the extent 
of the V. W. C. A. work here at Stout. 

E. J. V 
Finance Committee Report : 

The work of the finance committee began in earnest right after the in- 
stallation of officers. The play, "And His Name is Wobbles." came first 
and the amounts realized quite exceeded that of previous years. 

On April 12. l!>lf>. the Annual County Fair was held in the home eco- 
nomics building. Financially this was the m.>st successful, due to the ear- 
nest work and co-operation of the other committees and the support of the 

Pa%f prt 


\mmamM — — iiyifgz] 

whole school. Over $815.00 was cleared, which meant a larger delegation 
to the V. \\". C. A. conference at Lake Geneva in August. 

The rest of the money taken in by this committee goes into the general 
fund. To add to this, snap shots. I'.rewstcr's chocolates and Y. W. C. \ 
calendar- were sold: the play. "What Happened to rones," and the County 
Fair of 1920 will he held before this cabinet goes out of office. 

Social Committee Report: 

The social committee of the V. W. C. A. has charge of the social affairs 
that are connected with that organization. At the beginning of each school 
term one or more "mixers." usually in the form of a picnic, are givi 
that all students may become acquainted with each other as soon as possible. 

We attempt each year to raise the standards of individuals and the 
school and provide material for the bulletin hoard. This year we -have 
tried especially to improve table talk, eliminate gossip, and to "create a more 
fnendly feeling among the students.

Membership Committee Report: 

The membership committee has. as its name suggests, the duty of ob- 
taining members to the V. W. C. A. This is the chief aim of the committee 
although it has other duties as well. The first meeting of the school year 
was a meeting ol welcome to all the new students and members of the

first meeting. to,,k place after the welcome meeting, all the -irN of the 
school being invited personally into the Association with the result that near- 
ly one hundred per cent of the Protestant girls became members The rec- 
ognition, or candle light service was held in the Congregational church on 
the fourth Sunday of the school year. 

The membership committee also takes charge of sending notes or flowers 
to the sick, oi recording the activities of the V. W. C. A: and also of plan- 
ning together with the social committee the "mixer" for the new students. 

p , ,■ • n R - H. '20. 

Publicity Committee: 

Through the untiring efforts and able leadership of the chairman the 
past year has been a noteworthy one in the historv of the "Y" work for the 
publicity committee. In no previous year has the work risen to such a 
pinnacle <>t good quality. 

Briefly the work comprises posters for weekly association meetings 
tor the annual county fair, for amateur plays, and articles in "The Associa- 
tion Monthly describing successful "Y" functions. 

This year a special effort has been made to arouse student* to raise 
social mental, moral and physical habits by illustrative material and snappy 
bits of philosophy. On the "Y" bulletin board is placed literature on typical 
work throughout the country and other items of possible interest to the 

The work has been of no mediocre quality, but of such good quality as 
to cause favorable and creditable comment at the head office in Chicaeo. ' 

Social Service Committee Report: 

Much of the work of this committee is done outside of the campus and 
is exceedingly interesting. The following is a list of some of the things 
done durine the year: 

1. Taking food to sick people. 

.'. Sewing garments for poor children.

Religious Meetings Committee Report: 

As the name implies, this committee has charge of the weekly religious 
meetings held by the V. \V. C. A. The committee plans the meetings, sup- 
plies a leader, asks the people who have been appointed to take part in the 
program: in short looks after every detail of the weekly meetings.

World Fellowship Committee Report: 

The duty of the World Fellowship Committee is to create a spirit of 
better fellowship in the school, by organizing classes along the line of world 
fellowship interests; by conducting a week of prayer for various nations; by 
raising money to help support our missionary. Miss Dunning in Japan: by 
bringing before the students entertainment-- in the form of stereopticon 
lectures; thru the regular Y. W. C. A. meetings and by co-operation with 
other committei s. 
Bible Study Committee Report: 

The members of the Bible Study committee in planning their work for 
the year decided t.i aim towards securing a better CO-Operation between the 
churches of the city and the Y. \\ . C. A. The city churches urn- only too 
glad to do all in their power to help. With this "aim in view Stout Bible 
Classes were organized in the Methodist and Congregational Sundav Schools 
under the auspices of the Y. \V. C. A. The I'.ible study committee ch 
little booklet. "The Manhood of the Master." by Hr. Fosdick as the text for 
study. The class in the Congregational Church has been exceedingly for- 
tunate in securing a very able leader in the person of Miss Mathieson from 
the High School. The class in the Methodist Church has been somewhat 
less fortunate in that they have been unable to secure a permanent teacher 
until recently when Miss Hill from the Agricultural School had consented 
to teach it. 

Those who have attended testifv that the classes have been most val- 
uable. L. D. '20.

Student Welfare Committee 

The purpose of this committee is t.. provide for the health and happiness of the stu- 
dents by engendering the spirit of social fellowship. In order to realize this result, a: 
least in part, a social center, or the Cl"l> Room was opened January 19, IU2Q. 

Here the students gather daily between the hours of four and half past five in the 
afternoon for a visit, for a social game, or for a sing with their fellow classmates. On 
Friday night the hours are from seven to ten; on Saturday afternoon from two to five; 
on Saturday evening from seven to ten; and on Sunday afternoon from two to six. 

This is a social center where the right democratic spirit is fostered for all. No danc- 
ing or smoking is allowed in the room at any time, and no card playing is permitted on 

The supervision is centered in the various school organizations, each of which, to- 
gether with one faculty member, serves for the period of one week. Lunches may be 
planned and served by the organization in control. At the close of the week, a written 
report is submitted to the Chairman of the Welfare Committee. These occasions pre- 
sent many opportunities for good fellowship and the cultivation of the social graces. 

The school has made this whole project possible by renovating the walls and floors, 
furnishing pictures, tables, chairs and an electric plate. Then donations have come 
from individuals as well as from the Glee Club, the V. W. C. A., the Milling and Car- 
pentry Departments, the Stoutonia Staff and Lynwood Hall. 

The committee desires to make this Club Room a permanent socializing influence in 
the school life. With the enthusiasm and the hearty co-operation that has already been 
manifested, success is assured the Club Room.

The Marquette Club 

The Marquette Club was reorganized last fall from an old club of the same 
name which was held at Stout several years ago. 

The club cnsists "f twenty Catholic girls who have formed it for the 
purpose of becoming better acquainted with each other and for the purpose 
of discussing religious questions. Social meetings are held every month. 

Because of its late organization, the club has had no social affairs other 
than special meetings, but several plans have been made which will take place 
later in the winter.

This phonograph represents some advanced cabinet work at The Stout Institute, The 
nature and amount of work required to construct a phonograph of this kind makes it 
out of the question to consider it as a project for sophomore regular class work: first, 
for lack of time, because in considering the student's program as balanced with require- 
ments of him in teaching public school classes; second, for the average lack of skill, 
general acquaintance with shops, equipment, material, and good appreciation of work- 
manship requirements; hence this work was done outside of class periods by students 
who were familiar with cabinet and mill work. Some of these cabinets were made by 
juniors and seniors with credit allowed them for an advanced course, while the sopho- 
mores were granted advanced credits to apply toward junior-senior shop work. 

The cost of the phonograph, complete, to each student ranged from $50.00 to $65.00 
for lumber, mechanism, hardware, and finishing materials, but by doing all of the wood- 
work here in the shops of The Stout Institute each student became the proud owner of 
a phonograph in a class with the $300 to $400 commercial machine. 

For practical thesis credit, three sophomore students are making one this year to 
be used in the student club rooms.

Lvnwood Hall 

A is for Annice. who hails from Vermont. 

She never says can't, instead she says "cawn't." 

Alma and A^nes. we mustn't forget, 

They too. have a place in our hall's alphabet. 

I! stands for I'.arbara. twice Berenice and Bess, 

They're jolly nice ijirls. or I miss my jjii 

Then Clara, or "Shorty," comes next in the line. 

And with her our sweet, modest friend Caroline. 

D is for Dorothy, for warm "Alabani." 

Ask her to make you some corn bread or jam. 

Of E's we've a plenty, to count 'em takes time.

one: "Izzy," the little fat one: Kudic. the deteruiined one and The Demon 
Child: Ardis and "Grandma;" and last, but not least. King, 

The twirls soon found, however, that it was impossible to get along with- 
out a few of the sterner sex. So some hardy souls, whose motto is, "Xone 
l>ut the brave deserve the fare." came to join our family. "Doc." "\'es," and 
"Mac" were the first to shove masculine feet under the table. Then our 
hearts were made glad'by the arrival of "Salty" who came with three whoops 
and a hurrah. "Ilej>." the Pink and White Cupid, and Mauser arrived more 
leisurely. Last to cross our threshold was Dave who. after a consultation 
with Secretary Daniel-, was ordered to report with bag and hammock to 
Stout Institute and was attached to us for rations. 

We have spent a most pleasant winter together and will in the future 
often think of the many informal parties which followed the dinner hour. 

We cannot adequately thank Mrs. Tash for the favors which she so 
generously granted. We hope that during the summer months she

A Romance of Fairyland 

In a shady secluded nook, among sweet smelling violets sat an exquisite 

being — a fairy. Delight, lor that was her name, was very sad. All the con- 
flation of her beloved friends, the big golden butterflies, could not bring- 
back the smiles to her face and the laughter to her voice. He had gone. 
1 ler hero and knight, prince of the moon-beams, had forsaken her for the 
princess of roses. 

Three night- before while the queen of fairyland was giving a ball for 
her court and friends. Delight had wandered away from the pretty lights into 
a secluded spot. She heard voices. One she recognized. It was her i'riuces 
voice. She kept on, thinking perhaps that he was talking to one of her 

As she circled a beautiful heavy laden bush of roses, she saw the arms 
of the Princess of roses encircling her Knight. Delight suddenly vanished. 
All night she despaired, but no-one noticed her sad face. 

While Delight was brooding over her misfortune, she heard a faint 
scream. She listened carefully. Again she heard it. Summoning one of the 
golden butterflies, she climbed on his soft, downy back and sped away in the 
direction from which the scream came. 

Soon a small stream was reached. There in the middle of the stream was 
a tinv pink shell and in it stood the I'riuces- of roses. A big fat toad was 
just readv to make a leap for the bark. Delight, with due haste, urged the 
butterfly 'to hurry on. They were there just in time. As the butterfly 
SWOOped down the toad, recognizing Delight, turned and leaped back to his 
muddy home. 

Of course the Princess was very grateful. She wished to make Delight 
one of her court, but Delight could not be coaxed. A few days later, the 
Prince, hearing of the incident, came to visit the Princess. "She was in the 
rose garden," said the fairy attendant. As the Prince came up behind the 
:.o\ve'r he heard low whispered words of love. Surely it was not the Princess. 
Upon further investigation he was convinced that it was. 

The Prince, discovering that the Princess no longer cared for him, re- 
alized that he had never really loved her. but had truly loved his demure little 
fairy Delight. 

So back he went to find her. lie searched and searched in vain. The 
butterfly would not tell him where Delight had gone. Sick at heart, the 
Prince called on the strongest moon-beam warrior to litrht the way. After 
nights of searching and weary wandering he arrived at a hidden vale. He fol- 
lowed a small and narrow path which led to a bower of violets. Who should 
he see but his beloved Delight. 

After hearing the Prince's story and granting him pardon, the fairy con- 
sented to go with him. They traveled to the Prince's palace of moonbeams 
and were married with great pomp and splendor.

Jocko Tells Tales 

For six years Barrington Arkwight had been sole possessor and boss of 
;. huge Brazilian plantation, and the body of ignorant, superstitions blacks 
whom his reckless uncle had left him. Recently he had built himself an ideal 
bachelor's mansion, where he entertained his friends lavishly. Just now 
Richard Bartlett, an old college chum, was spending a few weeks with him. 

Barrington Arkwight seldom walked slowly, nor clasped his hands be- 
iiind him. and had never been known to hang his head, all of which he was 
doing .id this summer m< rning. Arkwight was thinking deeply.- for over an 
hour before he had learned that "Dicks" wallet containing a magnificent fiery 
opal, the stone that the superstitious both fear and worship, had been stolen 
from his room. 

During the hour following the discovery of the loss Arkwight had called 
the force of the workers to the hall in the rear of the garden. He had ques- 
tioned each one and had received this answer from every negro. "No, Mas- 
ter, I did not take the gem from your friend, and may the high and reverend 
Barokee (the God whom they worshipped) smite me dead if 1 lie to you. Good 

What could Barrington do? Each had denied the accusation but still 
one of them was guilty. How could he find the gem for Dick? He had in- 
structed the negroes to return in two hours, meanwhile he must act quickly. 

"At last I've got it," he cried and ran quickly to a small shed near by. 
from which he led Jocko, the pel donkey, in whom the negroes had great trust. 
"Jocko." he whispered, "you'll have to help me find the thief, but don't get im- 
patient, and you shall have some fine grain for lunch." 

lie then led Jocko to the small cabin and tied him securely. Kext he 
placed a basin of water near the donkey and took a handful of powdery sub- 
stance and rubbed it into Jocko's tail. He then returned to the main hall 
and waited for the return of the men. 

"Now my men," he began, as soon as the last negro had arrived. "I have 
been in conference with the all-seeing barokee and he has shown me how to 
mark the man who has taken P.arilctt's st"tie. I'.ach man must pass into 
the next room, dip his hands into a basin of water, take hold of Jocko's tail 
and jerk it gently three times, asking if he is the guilty one. Jocko will kick 
the man who has the stone. Now go, one at a time. If you are innocent 
keep your hands uplifted and your eyes towards the ceiling while you re- 

Soon every man returned. Arkwight was surprised to find no-one miss- 
ing. Meanwhile he looked at the figures before him and said loudly. "Kogs, 
you have the opal, get it at once." 

Bartlett. who has just returned, couldn't help but show surprise. Kogs, 
who was standing near the door, dashed out and began digging frantically 
in the flower garden. Soon he came back and handed the wallet containing 
the opal to Bartlett. 

After the negroes were dismissed Bartlett cried. "You're a wonder, old 
boy. but tell me how you did it?" 

"Oh. it was simple." Arkwight answered, "you see the guilty negro 
would never touch Jocko's tail for fear of getting kicked. So all I used was 
a little strategy and a little indelible powder." "Come Dick, be a sport and

Lesson Plan 

i tetober I "nteenth. 

Sophia Stout. 

Purposes to be realized. 

1. To teach the different ways by which the interior of an egg may be 
dissociated from its shell. 

2. To teach the necessity of such dissociation. 

3. To "incalculate" right habits: 

a. Mental — Cheerfulness. 

b. Moral — Cleanliness. 

c. Physical — Strength and Endurance. 


Now, dear children, we arc going to study about the oval or 
spheroidal reproductive bodv. produced by many birds and reptiles. 
The earliest recorded example of this species ■•: fruil is Humpty 
Dumpty. I'm sure that you all know this story. 

However simple the culinary operation may appear, it will be 
found that there is always a right and wrong way of doing things. 
Indeed, some claim that' there are many wrong ways and only one 
right way of performing the delicate operation of breaking an egg. 
We will 'endeavor to discover this morning the various ways ot ac- 
complishing this task. 

egg in forcible contact with 
a flat surface. 

'.». Kgjis may be dissociated from 
container by making a small 
opening in either end of the 
shell and holding one of these 
holes to the Kps. exhaling 
with force, and driving the 
contents thru the other end. 

1<>. Eggs may be dissociated in 
a similar manner, inhaling 

11. An omelet cannot be made 
without severing the thin but 
rigid calcareous membrane. 

12. The recipe to be used is: 
IT butter. 
4 eggs (unbroken) 
IT oleo. 
Vfet salt, 
speck pepper. 
IT flour. 

13. The omelet pan must be heat- 
ed over gas. then oleo added. 

14. The four eggs must be laid 
in nan. and other ingredients 


II. Things which must be known 
and done. 
It must be known that : 

1. An c.!^ is an oval or sphen 'i>l- 
al body produced by many 
birds and reptiles. 

2. An egg consists of a thin but 
rigid calcareous shell, and a 
slimy substance which sur- 
rounds a yellow, g«>cy ball

after 3-4 hour of patient work, 
you have not made an ome- 
let. Why? Yes, because 
the thin but rigid calcareous 
membrane had not been sev- 

Now, what have we learned about this spheroidal reproductive 
body today? \Ye have learned that the contents must be disso- 
ciated front the shell in order to make an omelet. We have learned 
that the contents may be dissociated by several different methods: 
(1) Accidentally. (2) Forcible blow on the side of the dish. (3) 
Forcible blow on flat surface.

The Brunner Bunch 

lu>! a word before we go. 

For here is some news that you should know. 
The War is over, it can't be that 

This town does not support a Frat 
Hut never-t!ic-less. thus my story goes. 

It I can't write poetry. I'll mix in prose. 

1 live at Hauler's, that's the place, 

The hoarding house, that don't say grace. 

We sure get the food and plenty to drink 
Although it's water from over the .-ink. 

We never hear a growl or kick 

And not a one has ever Keen -ick 

The girl- are four, and the men are three. 

That makes it nice lor us you see. 
Music we have that sure is fine, 

And we usually play it before we dine. 
After tlie meals we dance or talk. 
And if it is not cold we go out for a walk 

First on the list is a man named l.uecker. 

lie may be small but he is not a ducker, 
lie served in France but was too tough to kill 

I beard lie was wounded taking Cognac Hill. 
It may be kind or it may be cruel. 

1 in e his Uncle is paying him to go to school. 

The next is a girl as you may suppose, 

She wears glasses and powder- her nose : 
The words she can use sure are crimes. 

Rut at that she is pretty witty at times. 
She'll tell your fortune so it is said, 

I'm if it came true you're better off dead. 
Here's a tip to the guv who draws that lot, 

If he calls "Ruthie" she will answer "What?" 

Men. here is another, stop and listen. 

This is the girl we name "Ambition," 
She helps in the kitchen, of course voluntarily. 

Hut leave it to me, there is a good chance to marry. 
She lives in the South where the oil wells grow high, 

For further advice just ask "'.Mary I." 
This information is brief I confess, 

Just ask someone to point you out "Jess." 

Madelon. her room-mate, is next on the scene. 

She does not talk much, but may usually be seen — 
The first girl to breakfast and seldom is late. 

The others get around as the clock strikes eight. 
I have often heard that still water runs deep : 

It's leap year, so just let this seep 
Into vour ivory dome. 

And remember it's a secret SO keep it at home. 

'*">:«- '-'» 


The next is a name I could not make rhyme. 

So it you will excuse, 1 will omit the first line: 
1 lis first name is ! larrv. and to this I might say, 

1 le will be a good man with the ladies some day ; 
lie is easilv hissed, but not much at fussing. 

Watch your step, 1 [any, or you'll get a good dressing. 
The yirls at Stout this year are plenty. 

And hear in mind it is 1920. 

\llis is next although quite young. 

Talks with her eyes as well as her tongue- 
She freezes her nose on the way to school. 

\nd always wears her uniform according to rule ( .') 
She is hill "f pep and lots of fun. but never content 

I "mil her lessons are done. 

Last and least if I may say, 

Is a man who will boost for Iowa. 
If he earned his living by writing a rhyme. 

I'm afraid be would starve in a very short time- 
He always was bashful, said someone 1 know. 

But that is a habit he may outgrow. 

This is the size of the Stout ite bunch 

Who report for duty when wc serve lunch. 

T thank those involved for liberties taken 

And hope the richt spirit is properly taken. 

Please excuse the mistakes in this little verse. 

I know it is not good, but it might be worse.

To a Violet 

I went to the forest to pick a flower. 

I walked down the valley lower, and lower: 

The sun shone down the bubbling stream. 

The valley appears as described in a dream. 

In a cool mossy place a violet stood. 

Drooping her head in a weary mood : 

I wanted to pick it, it was so fair. 

But then, to wither it was too rare. 

With its roots I dug it up and carried it home. 

And planted it there in a rich, black loam.

Life hath no charms for me, 
I cannot land a man : 
It's a hard place to bfc —

L. W. 11. 

I sure pity the girls in the dorm' — 
They live a life of sorrow and storm. 
They can't stay out after 10:30 at night. 
And if they do they walk softly and light. 

While this with the girls would be all right. 
It certainly isn't in Miss C's sight. 
And while it don't bother the boys a bit. 
It gives Doctor Harvey many a fit. 

They mustn't make eyes. 
They mustn't make noise. 
They mustn't be seen alone with the boys, 
For if they do they are sure to go — 
Well— I won't tell where, for I am sure you all know. 

L. W. 11. 

After the Ball 

She was a young girl, not very tall but very pretty. She was very slight 
and rather frail looking, which only added to her beauty. She had large blue 
eyes and light curly hair, which waved prettily over her dainty forehead. 

She had just returned from the ball. At a glance one could tell all had 
not gone well. She threw off her coat and flung herself into a comfortable 
chair by the fireplace. 

"Oh, you have deceived me," she began. "You have wounded my pride 
but you shall pay. I loved vou with the greatest devotion, but vou are small, 

"You made me the envy of all the girls. I admired your beauty and attrac- 
tiveness, but in your bigness I was deceived. Never again will I appear in public 
with you. XEYER ! They tricked me into believing you perfection itself, and 
fool that I was, I lielieved them. 

"Not in one day can I forget the pain, the anguish you have caused me. 
But now I have found you out. and this torture must end. I cannot and will not 
endure it any longer." 

With this, she pulled off her tiny slipper and threw it into the fire.

Junior -Senior Class Notes 

It has always been the custom in college annuals for classes to vie 
with each other in boasting their deeds of valor or folly. We propose to 
tell plainly and candidly of a few of the pleasures and successes that we 
have met since we have entered Stout. Because the advanced course has 
just been offered, our group is small, but assembled from all parts of the 

Although we have been noted for our studiousness, we are by no means 
devoid of a bright and fun-loving nature. We have indulged in pleasures 
which have helped in making us acquainted, and in strengthening our friend- 
ships, hi the fall we held our first class picnic. W'e reached our destina- 
tion. Point Comfort, after a successful had been made for the infants 

who had wandered up the river. We enjoyed our first class affair — an event 
still fresh in our minds, and which will be remembered long after its writeups 
in our diaries have faded away. 

Another event in which the Junior-Senior Class was interested, was the 
Hallowe'en dance given by them to the students and faculty. Judging from 
the comments overheard in corridor and class rooms, dormitory and library, 
it was an unusually pleasant affair and the class was honored with much 
credit for being such royal entertainers. 

The "20's also took the initiative in supporting the athletic association, 
which has shown itself worthy of that support. 

Throughout the year a part of our time has been devoted to taking care 
of the Freshies and Sophomores, a part to class affairs, and the rest to reg- 
ular school work. 

The '20's. although belonging to the aristocracy of brains, possess per- 
sons of athletic prowess in basket ball, foot ball and gym. The class has 
contributed much to all college organizations, its members being active in 
Y. W. C. A. work, athletic council, student welfare committee. Inkers' or- 
ganizations, glee club, camp fire. Philo and Stoutonia staff. 

Loyalty to the class, the institution, and the faculty has been the strong 
characteristic of every member of our class. We face the future unafraid, 
for we believe that each one has in him the qualities which make for a suc- 
cessful career. 

We shall look back on our days at Stout with mingled joy and sadness. 
Our college days have been the happiest days of our lives, but we cannot 
suppress our feeling of sadness as we think of parting with the friends we 
have made here.

At the beginning of the fall of 1918 the Sophomore class entered at a verv 

rtimcult time, due to irregularities forced upon us l,v war conditions. The en- 
trance ot tlie S. A. I*. C. als.. changed the normal conditions <>f the school 
However, in spite of these difficulties our class was organized and Alice T. .Lev 
was elected president for our freshman year. 

We soon became adapted to conditions, and took our part in school ac- 
^,™f- Members of our class became active leaders in athletics V \1 C A 
Y. W. C. A., Hikers. Stoutonia Staff, Glee Club and other school activities' 
Perhaps the main social event of 1910 was the Freshman Prom given by our 
c.ass May, the second. It was held in the Stout Gymnasium and was' well 
attended by the whole school. Later in the spring we had a Freshman picnic 
at r-icnic I oint. which left a very pleasant memorv in our minds durin- the 
following summer vacation. 

In spite of discouragements, homesickness, flunking, and so on our class 
almost intact, returned to Stout at the beginning of the next vear brin-div 
with them, in many cases, pals from home. We elected new officers Mrs 
Uuncan as our president, but unfortunately for us, she staved with us onlv 
one semester. Again we took up our work, finding with the new vear new 
responsibilities and new fields of work. 

During our second year, the class of '20. due to its majority in numbers 
and enthusiastic member-. led in most of the school activities. The incentive 
winch led to the putting out of the Annual was due to our class. 

At the time of publication it will be impossible to record further events 
ior this year, but we hope that this record is not taken bv the reader as a boast 
but rather as it is meant to be taken, merely to aid us in remembering our life 
nere at Mill I . I lie years are apt to crowd our memories, causing us to 
torget what at the time seemed disappointing and discouraging, leaving only 
a very pleasant recollection of our years spent here. 

Our work will open new fields of aspiration and enable us to take our 
place in world where we will discover we are just beginning our course 
in the school of life. \\ hatever of good we do there we owe. in part to the 
iarsighted training we have received here.

Freshman Class 

In September we came, the largest class of Freshmen that Stout has ever 
known. Our faltering steps, our vain resolutions to stand firm, our home- 
sickness, we shared them all. There were fearful stories told to us by the 
haughty Freshmen of but a year ago, but we were released from the demons 
of Fear and 1 )istrust. when a kind teacher advised us consolingly that these 
were but fictitious tales promulgated by the Sophomores, with the purpose 
of creating in our minds a greater appreciation of those individuals, who, at 
that time, already had our supreme respect. 

The first week of STOl'T was distinguished by a party which was given 
f<>r the entire school. The hall, which was the scene of all the gayety, was 
beautifully decorated. Dancing was the chief entertainment of the evening. 
It was at this event that the boys discovered their enormous importance. It 
was very undiplomatic to walk in the wake of one of those desirable crea- 
tures, for the girls "went over the top" in true Yankee spirit, bringing their 
captors triumphantly to the room of refreshments with alarming frequency. 

At a meeting of the Freshmen class, George Decker was elected Presi- 
dent, with Nell Godsey for Vice President. Miss Godsey. however, because 
.- ■■:' her health, withdrew from scho* 1 shi rtly after, and her successor. Hannah 
Johnson, was chosen. Miss Allis Wells is Secretary and Mr. Spain Treas- 
urer of the Class. 

The Freshmen Class of 1919-1920 was characterized by its co-operative 
spirit and "team work" as it were. Mercenary, as well as all other issues, 
were met with encouraging response. 

Brown corduroy trousers were chosen by the Freshmen men as a dis- 
tinguishing mark. 

A picnic was planned to take place at Point Comfort, but the weather 
prevented, and we spent a delightful afternoon in the gymnasium. On Ar- 
mistice Day some of us felt sufficiently strong to stand alone, and proceeded 
in an enthusiastic manner to celebrate that day of such great significance to 
all of us by breaking study hours, hearts, and the stillness and monotony. 
Rut a few minutes were given us; for we were herded back to our respective 
dormitories where we learned through long weeks of confinement that the 
government of our school must be respected as the government of our coun- 
try which made Armistice Day possible. 

During the first days of December, several cases of scarlet fever broke 
out among our fellow members and with the exception of the girls who were 
at Lynwood, we were granted four weeks' vacation — part of which was made 
up at intervals on Saturdays (hiring the second semester. 

At the close of our Freshmen year, what does Stout stand for? T< 
ir means Stout in courage. Stout in honor and Stout in our ideals, which 
we have raised high as the tallest peak of our own Alma Mater.

Freshman Class 

Whence came the Freshies to Menomin's shore? 

What taste of knowledge that called fur more? 
Why met they here to work and toil 

At hems and scams and cooking oil? 
Why gave they freedom for cloistered years 

With days for study and nights for tears? 
Why came strong men to learn the art 

( )f building and joining and taking apart? 
What recompense for hours thus spent. 

Not counting the hoard and rooming rent? 
Listen, my friend, and you'll rind out. 

That there is a spirit that lives at Stout, 
That keeps the courage and purpose high. 

That makes new friends as days go by — 
The spirit that speaks from work well done 

P.v Seniors, who finished what "Freshies" begun. 
That. then, is the reason that the "Freshies" are here. 

The reason they suffered in silence and fear. 
The spirit that called them, told them of need 

Of skilled workers to teach and also to feed. 
It promised them wages and work for life. 

Whether bachelor maid, divorcee or wife. 
This spirit gives them courage — turns tears to a smile. 

For a Senior from Stout must be a Freshie worth while.

A Suggestion. 

When sorrows darken round our soul. 
And failing marks . .ur nerves control. 
And teachers frown with all their might. 
We think that nothing can go right. 

But when our work is not in vain, 

It seems like sunshine after rain. 

Then teachers smile like moonbeams rare. 

And we forget our every care. 

So let us try our very best. 
To pass in every dreaded test. 
To make all sorrows past us flow, 
And smile like sunset's cheering glow. 


When the papers in the basket rustic. 
L'pon the highest chair quickly hustle. 
Call for help of any manner or form 
And shake like a banner on a breezy morn, 
Until someone with more courage than you. 
Comes to your aid, the wee mouse to shoo. 

Air Castles. 
A- I -it alone at my table. 
And stare, and the books stare me back. 
I ponder and wonder and wonder: 
"Will I ever reduce that huge stack'" 
From 7 to It* I'm busy. 
My tho'ts on that Chemistry text. 
And then when that last page is covered. 
That poetry! It must come next! 
And here I sit a thinking. 
Trying to find a rhyme. 
And I am tired and sleepy. — 
Excuse me. Ill try harder next time. 

Charge of the Book Brigade. 
Books to the right of them. 
Books to the left of them. 
Books all around them. 
These are Stout student-. 

Study at night, they must. 

Study at morn, *tis just, 

Study at noon, or fuss. 

Faithful Stout students. 
When shall this grind be o'er? 
When shall they work no more? 
Xot till they've learned galore 

Of Wisdom's wonders. 

From a Stout Girl's Xote Book: 
Kiss is a noun, common and yet quite proper, rather irregular, never in 
the objective case, and agreeing with both subjects.

Class Will 

We, the members of the Class of Wi". of the Stout Institute. Menomonie, 
Wisconsin, being of sound mentality and understanding (although sometimes 
questionable), do declare and publish this, our last will and testament, to-wit : 

First: We give and bequeath to the Junior Class all of our unpaid debts, 
a? well as ;ho-e which may have escaped our memory. 

Second: We leave to the Junior Class the Consultation Room in the Li- 
brary as a meeting place before sessions to criticize the teachers, classes, and 
the general plan on which the school is operated. 

Third: We leave our favorite front seats in all classes to those whom 
teachers may wish to place there. 

Fourth: Our privilege to remain five or ten extra minutes in Miss 
McFadden's classes, we leave unconditionally to our unfortunate successors. 

Fifth: All our grades below M— , we leave and bequeath to any one who 
wishes to claim them, except who will have plenty of his own. 

Sixth: To Anthony Klink, we leave all our football tactics in the hope 
that by this bequest the'ltW championship will be clinched for Stout.

absolutely refuses to obey commands unless we

out in battle formation! There seemed to be 
something wrong with the first squad. 'What

all over the draft age, too. They come out ever> 
night as soon as Ves and 1 begin to play our 

"As I was going to say, last night then 
disorder in the ranks, and the officer in charge 
had quite a time enforcing commands. I could 
see no reason for the disorder, and it was almost 
lime for 'taps' when we remembered that we wen 
playing Vagtime, 1 and you know, that company 
refuses to drill when a 'ragtime' piece is played. 
Why, they just go crazy! Vbu should see them 
fall and tumble all over each oilier in wildest con- 
fusion. Too much for their nerves. Tratmurci' 
— and there is perfect order. 

"It's funny, too, how they make such good 
soldiers. Now the other night was the tirst time 
the lirsi louie' courtmartialed a man. and that 
was because he aooeared at inspection out of uni- 
form, and with his shoes unpolished. Hut he was 
with a sentence of three weeks K. V. 
duty. Funny! Hut cockroaches don't seem to mind 
that punishment, — much. 
"There's one little fellow who pets mixed up in 

drills. IK- never gets 'About I Face' correctly, and 
alwavs stumbles at 'Squads, right!*— and he never 
holds the pivot. If i: wasn't tor his being 'right" 
in other orders, I'd think he had suffered sun- 
stroke. .V it i-. I think these particular orders 
have had associations that cause a sort of brain 
storm. Worse than shell shock, you know. 

" \: first we hail only a company of infantry. 
but to my surprise, the other night, when wc 
started to play — out from under the dresser came 
a full transportation outfit with seven trucks and 
five mules. Sure, I'll tell you aliout this company. 
It took only a second look at these mules to see 
that a squad of our cockroaches had captured five 
wild bed ticks and trained them to draw their 
wagons— and you have to give it to them, for that 
transportation' corps handles all the supplies 
our company and they cover many kilometers

The first sergeant was fighting the cor-

the boxing and should have -ecu thai th^

down,' too. Once in a while a mule breaks loose 
in the night and grazes at my shoulder, but not 
often, for the stable hands are quite efficient 

"I only wish that you people could conic up 
and see them drill some night, but it would be of 
no use to try, for the company is under sealed or-

would take no chance drilling before strangers. 

"Another thing about the company. Von know 
they use the rug in from of our dresser for parade 
grounds, and it's almost worn out. Their march- 
ing, and the transportation corps have worn a 
path all around the rug. as they are on the go 
all the time. That company refuses to drill with- 
out their 'chow' so it keeps the transportation 
corps busy hauling food. Tonight, we expect a 
treat, as the colonel is to hol<| inspection, and it 
will be some grand review. For the past three 
weeks they have been clearing up their barracks.

And here some Juniors murmur o'er. 

"There's protein in I he bean," 
"For stains upon the kitchen sink.

A Certain Senior. 

I've had my till of education, 

And all my vain endeavor, 

I want to be a bonehead 

Forever and forever; 

To wear a cotton shirt again. 

Brogans and one suspender, 

T<> hum around the sunny latic- where 

God tops the hills with splendor. 

The hard-boiled looks of teachers 

Are noi iIk- looks of pleasure; 
When ragtime's being played. 

They cannot dance the incisure. 
Life's symphonies arc ti>o gay for them. 
They make a mirthless laughter, 
By trailing round about the halls 
And dancing madly after. 

High toned words are not the proof of worth. 

Nor psychology's devotion; 

I want to see the world again 

And feel the real emotion; 

These friendships have their roots in deeds. 

Boon of a tone affection, 

Life links itself with pleasures there. 

Its image and reflection. 

Joy hides itself in quiet rays. 

Not where the hand hurries. 

Nor does it -teal upon one. 

In sudden starts and flurries. 

In foreign towns and dusty streets 

Far from the school's endeavor, 

Aye, let me walk where joys lie deep, 

A bonehead forever.

The Annual is a great invention; 
The staff gets all the fame. 
The printer gels all the money. 
And the editors all the blame.

Resulting From Good English Week. 

In promulgating esoteric cogitation <>r articulation superficial sentimentalities and philo- 
sophical observations, beware ol platitudinous ponderosity. Let your statements post 
clarified conciseness, compact comprehensibleness, coalcsceni consistency and a concen- 
trated cogencv. In other words, talk plainlv, naiurallv. sensible, and truthfully, and that's 

Mi-* Case: "Young man. llie lights in this dormitory are put out at ten o'clock!" 

Voting man: "'That suits me. Don't delay on my account" 

Mi~s Williams (in hygiene): "What is the cranium?" 

Muriel Ferguson: "Why, it's an empty box-shaped thing, set on the shoulders." 

Senior: "Do yojj like pop-corn balls?" 
Fresh: "I don'tTcnow, I never attended one." 

Mrs. Dow (to Klla Root and Whitmus, who were sitting in a rather <lark corner of 
the hall at Tainter) : "You had belter go into the parlor, where it is lighter. I think it 
would he better for both of you." 

Fountain Pens are so named because they squid ink all over the English theme. 

Carb of Cfjanfes 

I wish to take this opportunity to thank those members 
of the Annual Board who labored faithfully to make 
this Annual a success. Much credit is also due Miss 
Ruth C. Hubbard for her splendid work on the "ads."

Are You a "Know-How" Man? 


In other words, are you an expert sheet 
metal man, knowing just how to handle 
every operation with maximum effi- 
ciency? If not, have you ever thought 
of the satisfaction it must be to be a 
"know-how" man — to say nothing of the 
increased earning power of such a man. 
There is no reason why you should not 
be such a man. It simply takes a little 
energy — a little determination to study, 
rather than wait for experience to teach 
you. Start right now by getting a copy 
of The 

Sheet Metal Workers' Manual 

By L. Broemel. 

It is a hand-book for the sheet metal 
worker, apprentice, student and teacher. 
It is primarily intended to show you how 
to get the pattern for an object and then 
how to use the tools and machines to 
make that object with maximum effi- 
ciency. In it you will find answers to 
a lot of questions you may be just a lit- 
tle too proud to ask someone about. 
Note its contents. Note the chapter on 
welding and other operations experience 
is pretty slow in teaching. Note also 
that you take no chance in ordering a 
copy for examination. Get a copy for 
yourself. Look it over and you will want 
everyone interested in sheet metal work 
as an industrial vocation for school 
shops to have a copy. Get it now for 
your term study.

A School with a 
Printing Plant 

is a school at its best; a twelve 
cylinder motor; a high power, 
modern engine of education; it 
never fails to deliver and it de- 
livers the best scholarship, the 
best, most practical scholars, 
the best citizens. 

A School without a 
Printing Plant 

is handicapped; its students miss the 
teaching of knowledge that type pro- 
duces, its teachers miss the inspiration 
that applied type knowledge gives their 
scholars; the community misses the 
well-rounded citizenship to which type 
work wonderfully contributes. 

There are thousands of printing offices 
already in grade and high schools ; many 
more thousands are needed, and will 
be installed. Let us help you get in early 
this powerful educational helper. Call 
for our salesman when ready to talk.
